able citizen is generally he who
locates after deliberation, and where
will he "deliberate" in this town?
It is a condition to be deplored, but
it will be tolerable if w- all will
do all that is in our might to make
pleasant the visit of our Eastern
friends while here. A committee
should be appointed to meet
strangers at the depot, secure their
names, if they have friends here
look them up, and do various other
courtesies nscessary on their first
arrival here. It will pay. The
first impression, be it favorable or

formulated and organiied system
of facts is valuable and can be put
to some practical use.
"The answer to the paradox is
that the cures effected by drugs
anionic the run of people are ooun
terbalanced by diseases brought
about by the excess in which these
iwonltt indulei. It is a recognue.l
fact that the Jews are less subject
to diseaso than are other persons,
and the fact has been explained by
the frugality of their habits. Ins
same reason infcht be urged in the
case ot the Christian Scientists.
This sect is eminently temperate

they take a hopeful attitude toward
life and thus escape the nervous
troubles that are caused by worry,
and their systems are not debilua

This is quite interesting in its
nilmiHMinn that ''although the
Christian Scientists dUpense with
medicine and drugs altogether, the
mortality among them is no great

does not go far enough to do jus
